I have a table and want to find the average percent change in column T minus column V when the value in column W is >0. This is the formula I have tried, but it just returns #VALUE. =SUMPRODUCT((Data!W:W>0)*((Data!T:T)-(Data!V:V))/SUMPRODUCT((Data!V:V)*(Data!W:W>0))/COUNTIF(Data!W:W,">0"))

I need to alter the current formula for columns J THRU M. So, rows 2 - 293 that have any value in columns F,G or H place the value of '1' in column 'M'. Concurrently any value placed in the 'E' column for rows 2 - 293 show "1", otherwise show a "0" for no value given. Rows 294 - 398 that have any value in columns F,G or H place the value of '1' in column 'J'. Concurrently any value placed in the 'E' column for rows 294 - 398 show "1", otherwise show a "0" for no value given.

I have a column I containing cells of different values; some of those cells are blank. I also have a separate column G that doesn't have any blank values. What I'm basically trying to do is use VBA to fill in the empty cells in column I with the value of their adjacent column G cells.

I am trying to use Index and Match to return the first date something was billed. Conversely, eventually I need to find the same for the last date. Right now, I am using a simple index match based on the row number, but if the activity changes, I need to validate the activity on Sheet 1 with the description on Sheet 2. There needs to be some logic in the formula to match the description to ensure it is looking up the correct row. Thus the logic would be, lookup/match the description in column A, then lookup and return the corresponding date for the first column within the corresponding row with a dollar value in it.
